Hound Show Cancellations

All 2020 Hound Shows have been canceled.

A Message from MFHA President Tony Leahy, MFH

The 2019 Theodora A. Randolph Field Hunter Championship (formerly the North American Field Hunter Championship) will be held October 7-12, 2019. This event features four days of first field hunting privileges in beautiful Virginia hunt country with four outstanding packs: Middleburg Hunt, Bull Run Hunt, Loudoun Fairfax Hunt and Piedmont Fox Hounds. In addition, we have planned a wonderful week of social events.

We are proud that this event is held for the benefit of the INOVA Loudoun Hospital Foundation.

Mounted judges will ride with the competitors during the week and the Championship will be held at Glenwood Park in Middleburg, Virginia on Saturday, October 12 before the Virginia Fall Races.

Entries are now open and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. This competition filled early last year and we were unable to accommodate many riders, as we can only accept a maximum of 60 entries. We expect to fill prior to the close date of September 20, so please encourage your members to submit their entries early.

This competition awards a total of $4,000 in prize money to both the winning hunts and the winning riders, which is new for this year. We have also added an award for the highest placing Thoroughbred in memory of Dr. Alexander Mackay-Smith.

Do you have the next Champion Field Hunter in your hunt club? The Entry Form and more information can be found on our website and our Facebook page. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at karynwilson.fhc@gmail.com or 703-403-4884.
